Hi,

at first many thanks for really simple and nice game, I'm newbie here, so maybe my questions are stupid. I received the price from "Secret trials" - Advanced Uprated Engine. Where can I see the tech specs of this engine, and how can I install this engine to existing planes in the hangar?

 

 

If you already have this equipment you can take a look at it in the Depot. You can equip it in the "Service" Tab when you choose an appropriate aircraft. Please mind that your aircraft must be of suitable Period. For example if you have an Advanced Uprated Engine (Period II) you can equip it on aircraft of Tiers V-VII, if you have an Advanced Uprated Engine (Period III) you only can equip it on aircraft of Tiers VIII-X.

Too bad ...

Would you consider changing end time for future events ? Like I said, people with a day job now only can play Monday evening and then hope their position for a reward is safe. But they could lose it to pilots who can play during the day. With an hour of 2 on Tuesday evening they could get some more points ... 

 

@blindfold ; could you answer this question ?

Had to think of this when a collegae who also plays said he hoped he would still be in the top 30 this evening when it ends. We working people can play on Monday evening and then have to hope that not too many players overtake us in the ratings ... a couple of extra hours on Tuesday evening would be great !!

@blindfold too,

 

This month is all German equipment and stuff.

 

Do you know what will be the next nation? Or the complete order of the nations?

 

I would like to make a long range plan, with emphasis on US and Britain, so it would be useful to know how to organize my grind.

 

Thank you!

Not that. You're talking about the March of Nations (discounts on planes of a nation, changes weekly), and I'm asking about New Ratings Secret Trials - first week it was special engine for Germans, the second is wpn improvement for Germans, now we'll have a week to achieve a good German pilot etc.

 

Four weeks exclusively for Germans.

 

So I'm asking who's the next nation's month, or do they know the full order for four-five months?

It's doubtful to have 5-6 months event. Its more likely Secret Trials to be the only one of it's kind for the moment, because it somehow supports the new BV203. Afterall, what unique technology should we expect from 1930's-1940's USSR? It wouldn't be historically accurate.

Although the tech is german, I just succesfully installed the gun gizmo (I forget the name, the one which has better rate of fire) onto IL-40 - so it seems it's universal war spoils loot.

Yeah, that was already confirmed by blindfold.

 

I put gas-operated action on my 109Z, because I just specced it yesterday and I'm now stuck with 30mm's. It really helps to get a higher ROF !! 

Participated in period II and III, so I also got the equipment for period II, not sure yet where I'll use it.

How is that ??

The engine and equipment can be used on all nations, not 'special for German' as you claim ...

Only the pilots are German-exclusive.

I don't think that the schedule will be changed, right now it is designed to cater for most of players: if you have 5/2 working days you have all weekends to participate + evenings occasionally, if you have 2/2 shifts it is also convenient. Of course if you have all day long to devote your time to the game you probably have an advantage but this is how any ladders work.

In the next couple of months there are no any other nation equipment planned. The thing is that you can equip this German equipment to aircraft of any nation, it is not nation tied. The name of the equipment (and ratings) is thematically connected with the Op Order aircraft. It is German, so the equipment is German as well. I do not exclude the possibility of appearance of other nations equipment but not in the near future.

Well, that's exactly my point. You can get a nice rating in the weekend and after that you only have Monday evening and a very small part of Tuesday evening to keep your position. Another option would be to let it start on Wednesday and end on Sunday evening. It just would be more 'honest' ...

For instance, I had a very good position in Gold (around 140), but only just managed to keep that on Monday and 1 hour on Tuesday. Ended on 192 ...

I agree with GoneNL. At the moment people with a job and family don't have a chance to partitipate in the final hours before the event finishes.

I was close to drop out of the top 200, so I did 2 more battles to be save. If I would have been working this day I would not be able to do this.


 

The naming "German equipment" is really irritating. Please don't do this again.

Thank you for the explanation. And as klbergmen said, the naming is confusing. You never explained "yes it's German but can be applied to any nation". I would have played differently had I known this.

Same here ; Monday evening I was at 140 something (safe I thought), but when I came home Tuesday I was at 192 !!! So after diner I excused myself and managed to get in some battles, enough to keep me safe.

A colleague of mine was in the top 30 (!!) and Tuesday evening after work (too late to play) he was at 33 ... so he got the same reward as me at 190.

They did actually.

I've read it on the forums, Reddit and Discord. That's why I played period II and III, to get 2 prizes.

You have unfair advantage: you can read.  :teethhappy:

 

I've missed this info and therefore missed Period II stuff. I knew about being in II and III simultaneously but decided I will play only for III stuff, "that's what I need with Germans, and when my Brits and US come I will do II and III".

 

Oh well...

 

PS

and my new Der Gas Action is now on Javelin. Fully maxed out to 478 :-)

Wow, why did i expect the last part of this event to be better than all the previous ones.

At least there is nothing here that i could lose if i wouldn't participate in this tournament, because

Free exp: have no worth,

Gold: WG does everything to make it worthless

Token: same as gold, you can't even skip all missions with them anymore

 

I couldn't care less about this stage, thx for the break.

Rewards for tier 1-2 is a very bad idea. Plenty of "pro" players who "dont care" about their stats will hang there ruining games for newcomers. Game should give rewards only for one division per player account so everyone would have a chance. 

Looks like its time to hunt for thoose i5 in specialist configuration.
